Maybe We Should Be Putting Our 3D Efforts Into Food Printing

We’ve seen 3D food printers before, but now we know exactly what deliciousness they’re capable of. Food squeezed out of a syringe never looked so tasty—or artful.

Cornell University’s Computational Synthesis Laboratory developed the fab@home technology used to create these 3D printed foodstuffs. Using a process called “solid freeform fabrication”, material is squeezed out of a syringe and layered in lines to match blueprints and designs.

3D printing provides a greater degree of uniformity across multiple items and more detail than if food were molded by hand. [Designboom]
